Today is the day to tell what went right instead of focusing on what went wrong which so many of us are so good at doing!
I’m on vacation this week and I’ve managed to strike a balance between relaxing and getting things done.  

On Monday we tackled the headboard in our bedroom.  I bought a new comforter and curtains, but the headboard no longer matched.  So my husband painted it blue (which was very nice of him and unexpected) and recovered the foam core board with new fabric.  Looks much better.    I had to go to the fabric store to get the new fabric and while I was there I happened to see fabric I liked and then just had to get a new pattern. The patterns were only $1 each.  Who could resist that?!

I cleaned my work room which means when I go in there I am not distracted by the clutter and mess.  I can sit, work, read, pray, ponder in peace.  And sew that new dress.

And this morning, I went grocery shopping.  It was pretty bare in there, I used the last of the eggs yesterday to make cinnamon coconut flour muffins and after my husband packed his lunch for today, well, there was some spinach, celery and a few apples.  Not much else.

    That's so pretty! It looks like something you'd find in a B&B. And you made that yourselves?! WOW!

    I find when the basement is messy, I don't want to go down and sew. I do better when it is straightened up a bit. Have fun with the new patterns.
